Robin is sad about amber and mike leaving T_T
Man, now I want to own all the Skittles in the world.
But what if you ate them all at once?
Diabetes, here we come!
I think a sugar coma would kick in immediately, before diabetes had time to develop.
I think robin would become president if that happened XD
President of the universe and all other universes.
soggies may rule? hmm, i think skittles needs a mascot as well as villains for said mascot.
I like to pretend that M&Ms and Skittles are mortal enemies due to a territory dispute in yesteryear.
Very easy if you have something that is entirely unique. Then pay the company that makes skittles to change the definition of what a skittle is for 1 hour on April 1st. Ta da. For that hour you own all the skittles in the world.
But wouldn’t this include ones that were accidentally put in the garbage/toilet. Maybe even the half chewed ones?
I mean, do you really want those?
I’m just saying…
Why does this remind me of Miss Piggy in The Muppets Take Manhattan?
GETCHER QUELLE DIFFERENCE
Robin attempting to marry NPH would be absolutely hilarious. Maybe she could slip him some Cadbury Cream Eggs or something.
Though I do find it slightly amusing that she apparently has a record for falling for the gay guys. Not that Doogie was, of course, but NPH, though in his case, I can’t say I blame her… *coughs* What?
Yeah, that Neil Patrick Harris is one sexy- Err, I mean, uh, poor Robin, having her dream crushed.
to be fair Joe wasn’t gay he was super anti-gay robin just let him fall in love with rachel
Well, she did accomplish it for a while. It didn’t work out, but they were together for a long time. She should be proud of that.
So Robin doesn’t like Glee? That’s surprising. I would have thought she’d love all the fabulous-ness of it.
Wow, she does always fall for gay people.
But if you steal the auto-tune, Robin, then it would be painful to hear Finn sing.
Sigh, we used to have kidnappings, we used to have giant monsters, we used have nerds going berserk in the store, we had a spider car.
Now we have diary entries. Depressing diary entries. Following some other, depressing (or at least not laugh out loud) stuff.
I think a new character that uses fluorescent lights as light sabres would be good. Or packs of wild dogs, aliens, guh, anything that doesn’t use the word relationship.
Raccoon infestation! Trained GMO raccoons, with lasers! And tasers! And masers!
How about gay rights raccoons with lasers who want to use the store as their headquarters?
Crap, now I really want to read that…
Great. Thanks for making everyone even MORE depressed. Now frosgrok is going to run off and slit his wrists. All because of you. I hope you’re happy.
Hmmm, I don’t think I’m depressed, just that the theme of “child’s dreams melted by adulthood’s wear and glare” is not really in the top ten of build ups for a punch line.
Now a wacko boss in a cage… We’s a talking funnee!
RE: “How about gay rights raccoons with lasers who want to use the store as their headquarters?”
Those little hamster guys with the cannons (back a few months) could be gay rights, and the raccoons could be the GLTGPPTSBDSMKMR rights group that are at war with them for not being inclusive enough! (yes I knew what all those letters stood for as I typed them, no I don’t know now)
I wonder if anyone was reading It’s Walky back in the day and complaining about how the strip was all aliens and action instead of the college humor they tuned in for.
David is an Equal Opportunity Disappointer. He gets hate mail no matter what he writes.
My best friend of the time did that all the way up to the end. Then he was like, nooo, why is Shortpacked so wacky, bring back the drama! Can’t please some people, I guess.
The Internet be a fickle mistress.
If Willis suddenly decided “Hey, i’m gonna make EVERYTHING pre-shortpacked available in book form all at once!” I would be all “My good sir, you have yourself a deal!”
There’s always the chance she could convince Leslie to do a threesome.
At least, I hope so…
I see what you did there.
Mmm, Tom Baker Gravatar
wait….she crossed off “bang a dude?” when did she bang a DUDE? the only sex that I am aware of was her being all sweaty in the afterglow with her lesbian, and as we all know from “Chasing Amy” that doesn’t count as “real” sex
is this some subtle hint or did I miss a major storyline??
I think she crossed off “bang a dude” because she gave up on that dream, Meiji — as she wouldn’t dump/betray Leslie for anything in the world, as she said.
I wonder if thats foreshadowing? nah probably not
She’s obviously not crossing them off as in the “check!” way, she’s crossing them off cos they failed. I mean, she hasn’t married Doogie Howser.
and she won’t live with her friends in a big house forever
Ha. I can imagine Robin marching on set, snatching the tuner with a stern look at the actors, and speeding out of there while they stare in bewilderment after her. That would be the best episode ever.
Maybe she could punch a glee kid a little bit too:D
Marry Doogie Howser? “bang a dude”? Is this the “Vagina Diaries”?
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait up. This retroactive revelation means that *something Robin planned actually worked.* This would be, what, the first time that’s happened? Ever?
Didn’t she push Joe and his lady together in the end? Or was that all accidental from her own Joe-jonesing?
Since the list contains “bang a dude”, I assume striking out a list item means she’s GIVEN UP on ever accomplishing that goal.
She probably gave up on NPH because of the gay thing, she gave up on the “dude” thing altogether because of Leslie (again, “the gay thing” and now she’s giving up on living in a big house with all her friends FOREVER since Amber and Mike are moving out.
Robin is such a cutie.
(Yeah, that’s really all I had to say.)
Rock star, congresswoman, same difference, right?
I actually read that as “Being a dude”.
I do like the difference of expressions in the fourth and fifth panels. She looks sad…but then she looks determined/hopeful/somewhat smiling.
I think that list is still viable. She did live in a house with all her friends (though not forever). And if anyone’s gonna marry Doogie, it would be her. Maybe Doogie actually exists in Shortpacked? Like how Optimus actually exists in my reality.
Why did she give up on rock star? For that matter, why did she cross out “bang a dude”? Just because she hasn’t done either to date does not mean they might not yet occur.
p.s. This one made me feel sad for Robin.
.. cause she doesn’t want to anymore I’m guessing, heh.
Assuming monogamy, Hopefully leaving “Bang a Dude” on the wish-list implies hoping that her thing with Les Bean is temporary.
You can see why you’d want to scratch that off.
However, notice that it’s written in ink, but scratched out in pencil!
1) Robin Will get over her momentary distraction and still be unhappy that her friends moved out.
2) Mike will find Robin’s unhappiness perfectly acceptable, but Amber will not.
3) This will cause a split between Amber and Mike. Fulfilling at least part of the title “Relationshipocalypse”.
I understand that this prediction is pretty obvious, but I’ve found that taking credit for obvious predictions on the internet is a great fun way to boost self-esteem.
That’s a great idea…I’m going to start stalking blogs and webcomics just to post obvious things so, when they happen, I can say “Hey, I’m the one who predicted that!” You’re a genius!
I already do that.
Why is Robin left-handed in the flashback and right-handed in the present? She was never resurrected, was she?
To be fair, in kindergarten I used to switch between left and right hands until my teacher forced me to pick one.
DW loves to hide little easter eggs in his comics . . . if there’s more to this than meets the eye, it won’t be the first time such a thing has happened.
I hope robin didn’t scratch out be a rock star. Think of all the things she’s done already saved the toy store, become a senator and become a lesbian. I believe in her!
damn why does this strip have to be such a downer?
SHORTPACKED BABIES! WE MAKE OUR DREAMS…COME…oohhhhhh…
When I read people here saying “why’d she cross out ‘bang a dude’ when she never did” I checked and noticed that it did say ‘bang a dude’, while I had misread it as ‘bang a duck’.
READING SKILLS, I AM DISAPPOINT.
Awww… Amber and I were the same exact children… Only for me, it was to own all of the different flavors of Twix bars they used to make.
They…. they used to make… DIFFERENT FLAVOURS… of TWIX?
This is sweet. I wanted to live in a big house with all my friends when I was a kid too.
Actually, I still do.
I want to marry Doogie Howser too. Too bad NPH is gay…
